JOHN CALE - 1985-11-04 - Mannheim - New AUD Matrix -> essential upgrade, check sample


Description
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
John Cale
Capitol, Mannheim, Germany
November - 04 - 1985


Matrix of 2 different sources:


Source 1: my own recording
Rec. Info:
Aiwa Walkman with plug-in mic -> Mastercassette
Processing:
master tape -> cass transfer via Denon tapedeck DRM 800A -> Magix Audio & Music Lab (edit/remaster) -> FLAC
2 tracks missing: Heartbreak Hotel + Model Beirut Recital


Source 2: master recording from MILAVALENTI
Rec. Info:
SONY WM-D 6 with OKM 01 Headmicrophones -> AUD Analog Master -> cass transfer via Denon tapedeck DRM 800A -> Magix Audio & Music Lab (edit/remaster) -> FLAC
Complete show


Matrix arrangement:

flac files both sources -> Magix Music Cleaning Lab (re-edit/remaster) -> FLAC -> DIME
The speed of source 1 was corrected to fit to source 2.


I made already a Matrix of both sources in 2016 (also upped to dime) but for this Matrix here both tapes were transferred newly on better equipment, so this is an upgrade to the older Matrix.



Here is the original text:


This recording recording is not as good as the one from the previous year in the Mannheim Feuerwache. The sound characteristic of the Capitol are quite bad
as due to the very high dome construction there is a lot of echo created.

This show was on dime before from another source and this is some info from the other upload (re-seed by OndraK, Nov. 2010):

In his John Cale biography Tim Mitchell writes about this show:

"In Mannheim in November the band opened the show with one of these [new] songs,
'Something's Gone Wrong', but it had little to recommend it and did not stay in
the set. Although the show had a certain amount of power, it failed to gel in
the old ways. Some of Cale's vocals sounded tired and his usual tirades forced.
He told a joke about a Russian bear and a rabbit that was lost on much of his
German audience and found himself unable to play 'Fear Is a Man's Best Friend'.
It was only on the newer material and towards the end of the performance that
things picked up at all."

I disagree here. This performance is twisted, as many others from this tour, and
although Cale is definitely in low state in parts (especially on Leaving It Up To You),
it has some very edgy moments (WFTM f.e.).
